Stronger and Smarter Workouts With Digifit
Susan has been Spinning® with Digifit Ambassador and Spinning Instructor Giovanni Masi for over a year.
Since Gio has started to help her in her running training using Digifit to track Heart Rate, Susan has recorded Personal Bests on runs on a near weekly basis! She never thought she could break the 12 min mile mark, but with the help of her trainer, the Digifit app and a Heart Rate Monitor, she has left that time in the dust. Also gathering dust is her old Garmin Watch.
Suffice to say, Susan thinks Digifit is pretty splendid:
“I have so far logged 88 running and Spinning workouts with Digifit. Digifit’s visual displays allow me to compare one workout to another, which has facilitated improvement in performance, recovery and endurance. Over the past four months Digifit has taught me to control my heart rate in such a way as to become more efficient in both running and Spinning®. For example, the first run I logged on Digifit was October 10, 2012 with a pace average of 12:04, which was pretty much the norm for me. Later on a similar run I logged a pace average of 10:34, which is a time I never thought I would see! This is a remarkable feat and attributable to the skills learned from using Digifit and Giovanni’s training advices/plans on a regular basis. Taking more than 1.5 minutes off my pace has inspired me to keep trying to run faster and stronger.
During spinning classes, Digifit has taught me to control my heart rate with resistance and breath. It has truly empowered me with the confidence and strength with which to challenge myself to become a stronger and smarter rider. It appears as though the strength gained from using Digifit regularly has spilled over into general fitness classes and personal training at the Y and at L.A. Fitness. Now, using Digifit in those classes will help me to improve my performance there as well.
Overall, I would say that the gains from using Digifit have been great. Just by monitoring my heart rate and learning how to control it, my level of fitness has improved remarkably. Since I spend an average of nine hours a week engaged in physical activity, this is a big deal. Thank you Digifit!”
Now that Susan has made such great gains, the next step is taking a Fitness Assessment so she can truly see her gains in her fitness level.
